Ilya Efimov Chinese Hulusi

Ilya Efimov has released Chinese Hulusi, a new virtual ethnic folk instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The hulusi or cucurbit flute is a free-reed wind instrument from China. It is held vertically and has three bamboo pipes which pass through a gourd wind chest; the center pipe has finger holes and the outer two are typically drone pipes. It is not uncommon for a hulusi to have only one drone pipe while the second outer pipe is merely ornamental. The drone pipe has a finger hole, which allows it to be stopped.

The Hulusi library can allow a user to imitate virtually anything that a real hulusi could play. Ii8intervals were recorded for up and down legato articulations in two variants: normal legato and glissando. We have provided the ability to vary the dynamics of the instrument to convey a wide, detailed range of expression from pp to ff. Natural vibrato may be added to the sound at any time. Staccato articulations provide added realism by means of a round-robin algorythm.

Chinese Hulusi features

  • 240 MB converted NCW format, 44.1kHz/24-bit, stereo.
  • 2 natural legato types: normal and glissando.
  • 11 different articulations.
  • Realistic dynamic from p to f.
  • Two vibrato types.
  • Control of realistic vibrato.
  • Reassignable keyswitches and midi-controllers.
  • 3 modes of legato performance.
  • Detune vibrato keys.
  • Drones tune and volume control.

The library is available for 39 EUR. Requires full retail version of Kontakt 5.3+.

Ilya Efimov releases Fretless Bass for Kontakt

Ilya Efimov Freless Bass

Ilya Efimov Production has announced the release of Fretless Bass, a virtual bass instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

This carefully-crafted instrument is designed to be a detailed emulation of a hi-end 5-string “studio custom” bass from the F-Bass company.

The three right hand positions in one patch: normal, soft, “Jaco” and additional articulations – allow the user to edit their MIDI notation or play in real-time. By minimizing the use of keyswitches, the instrument has been designed to be simple and intuitive to use. A sophisticated algorithm to select strings in real time, automatically selects the natural bass guitar left-hand position on the fretboard. Manual string and position selection are also available.

The library’s repetition keys make it easy to play realistic ostinato bass-lines. FX glissando is designed to add realism to bass guitar parts. Multiple legato types are changed automatically, depending on the first note played. Included also, are several Legato modes, Open String mode, Chord Detection mode and X-note mode.

Fretless Bass features

  • 2.37 GB ncw compression format.
  • 4612 samples, 24-bit, 44.1 kHz.
  • Up to 12 velocity layers, 21 frets on each string with round-robin algorithm.
  • Three right hand positions in the single patch.
  • Auto and Manual String and Position Selection.
  • Attack control.
  • Slide-up, Flageolets, X-notes (two modes for x-note performance).
  • Repetition keys for X-notes and last articulations.
  • Realistic glissando note-to-note.
  • Gliss-FX.
  • AMP cabinet and Bass tone effects.
  • Multiple FX and Noises (strokes, fret noises, releases).

The sample library is available to purchase for 99 EUR.

Ilya Efimov has released Armenian Duduk, a virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

This faithful reproduction of the Armenian double-reed woodwind instrument, with multiple legato articulations, gives you the ability to vary the instrument’s dynamics to convey the wide, detailed range of expression so sought-after in many of today’s biggest film scores.

They have provided the ability to vary the dynamics of the instrument to convey a wide, detailed range of expression from pp to ff. Natural vibrato may be added to the sound at any time. Staccato articulations provide added realism by means of a round-robin algorithm. Users can reassign keyswitches and MIDI-controllers, then save the changes to a user preset. Default settings are easily restored at any time.
